I must say, this contest did really bring out the best parodist in everyone (brilliant idea Tomario, and I really hope there are more installments!) and everyone who entered and wrote did an excellent job, so I really hate to play favorites, but alas, I must. These five really stuck out in my mind in terms of how much effort and humor was put into the OS and how well it was pulled off.

5 Points to Johnny D
4 Points to Jeff Reuben
3 Points to Agrimorfee
2 Points to Stuart McArthur
1 Point to Red Ant

Yay! I have 2 points! Here's my votes:

1 point: Kristof's (hic!) original use of (hoc!) nature (BURP!)
2 points: Step-Chan's sad obsession
3 points: Stu's charming chalker (think about it!)
4 points: Red Ant's long-lasting parody
5 points: Jeff's hip dog-walker, fool!

Well done, everyone!

Excellent competition all. I wish the OS difficulty factor was more even for the entries, as it largely (but not entirely) came down to that when deciding my top 5.

Anyways:

5 points to Johnny D (top humor, hard OS)
4 points to Agrimorfee (perhaps the hardest OS here (doubt I could have pulled this one off), great execution)
3 points to Jeff Reuben (a 'fairly easy' (using those words quite loosely here) rap song still blows most other OSs out of the water in terms of difficulty - funny too)
2 points to Matthias (weird and quirky, and probably the only song here I would have said "F*** it" to and outright quit!)
1 point to Tomario (this song is deceptively difficult - I've trashed several ideas of it in my time here 'cause I couldn't get them to work at all)

Honorable mentions to everyone else.

Note to Cat: I did find my BJ GH CD #1, so I sang/read all entries to the recordings.

Yes, degree of difficulty played a part with my votes here too (not a factor in other comps)
but the overall quality was outstanding

5 points.............AGRIMORFEE -  NO PARADISE AT THE OLD CAMPSITE
4 points.............JOHNNY D -      PLEASE SAUSAGER STUFFSKI
3 points.............JEFF REUBEN -  THE DOG WALKERS
2 points.............CAT -              GUHLEE MAN
1 point..............RED ANT -        GOBSTOPPERS

and 2 of the funniest, Matthias and Kristof's, I had to cut

Sad obsession?  ???

Why would something I like to do be sad? ("Unusual" would be a better description)

Anyway.... I'm not sure what to give out at the moment. I'll have to think about it abit more.

When I say 'sad' as in an obsession means 'it's-so-freakin'-weird-it's-hard-not-to-feel-sorry-for-the-obssessed-twit'. I got that phrase from Red Dwarf...I think.

WOO WOO WOO WOO!

YES! YES! YES!

Thanks to everyone for your votes! 8) I feel like Susan Lucci at the Emmys, or Randy Newman at the Oscars...or the Bridesmaid who finally became the Bride!  :D

Here's a pat on the back for everyone who participated. (pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat...)

Let's give a few Karma points to Tomario, for having the idea for the contest, and for his kind words throughout.

Okay, gotcha. ;)

I agree with Jeff - I hope Jeff gets a tougher song next time too...

fantastic to see you win, Agri :) - and as God is my witness, I can safely say that even if I live to 110, I will never even entertain the thought of writing a parody to "Paradise By The Dashboard Light"
